QUEEN
In Hama [Tarantura TCDQ-9-1/2, 2CD]

Live at Bunka-Taiikukan, Yokohama, Japan; April 30, 1975. Excellent audience recording by Mr Peach.

This has previously circulated as a 76-minute, single CD and, in May 2012, Tarantura put out this “far superior sourced” two-CD set recorded by the famed Mr Peach.

Here are some notes from queenlive.ca:

After the first song, Freddie greets everyone on hand in Japanese, as has become usual. After he recites his one decent piece of Japanese to the approval of the audience, he coyly says under his breath, “I’ve got that over with.” He then introduces Ogre Battle. Brian doesn’t do his usual guitar feedback intro tonight, instead beginning the song with the main riff…

After a great version of Doing All Right, Freddie introduces the medley. “We’d like to do about four songs right now, a kind of a medley - three songs from our new album Sheer Heart Attack, which I know you all have got. And we’ll also do a special little number called Killer Queen.” The song is a major hit in Japan at the moment, so its mention receives a rapturous applause. During its performance, Freddie stops singing part way through the second chorus as on the studio version, momentarily forgetting that their live arrangement completes the second chorus before a truncated guitar solo. They play the last few bars of the chorus instrumentally and carry on as normal. Brian’s ensuing solo is very playful, and they finish the medley as per usual.

During an extended version of Liar, Freddie does a vocal exchange with the audience. Part way through he professes, “I’m gonna teach you some English words.” For some reason, “shag out” is his selection of language, and he soon jumps into the “Mama I’m gonna be your slave” part to finish the song.

Brian responds to the frantic audience. “I don’t know what to make of that. We quite don’t know what to make of all it. We’re a little bewildered up here. This is called In The Lap Of The Gods… Revisited. Thanks a lot.”

Thanks to Yuiham and g_pretender for sharing the tracks.

  2. don`t know which is worse, disco , or 80`s glam bands.

  3. Fantastic post. Thanks for the classic Queen!!

  4. turncoat: That’d be disco. For all their glam Queen could rock hard: Now I’m Here, Brighton Rock (part of the solo here), Liar.

  5. Thanks, BigO! And folks, Queen rocked hard no matter what musical style they played, and they played MANY of ‘em…

  6. Thank you so much for this, BIG O!

    I just saw the opening night of the MAIDEN ENGLAND US tour in Charlotte, NC last night… the setlist and performance are INCREDIBLE! ALICE COOPER warmed up for them.

    If you could find and post either of these sets by MAIDEN or ALICE, it would be VERY much appreciated!

    Yours in allegiance,

    @turncoat: there’s some good disco also. And 80’s glam bands are (usually) crap, but 70’s glam was great: Bowie, Roxy Music, T.Rex, Mott The Hoople, Lou Reed (yes, he had a glam phase),…
